Children's history of Thomas Jefferson. As with the previous one we read about George Washington, we get a more complete life picture of Thomas Jefferson from childhood through death. I like this as we are able to see more of the whole picture and place the man in his time which helps to give a better idea of who he really was rather than just the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence and then bought the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon. He dealt with a lot of tragedy and had a lot of flaws but that only makes his accomplishments stand out that much more which is something that is lost in more traditional school history books.
